Hoverchairs for floating senior citizens

Hovercrafts are great ways to reuse a leaf blower or shopvac for goofing off. Now some folks in Japan are using the same idea to float senior citizens around. These chairs designed at Japan's Kobe Gakuin University can lift up to 330 pounds. The next step is to find someone who can manufacture them so we can get everyone floating along, softly bumping off each other.

Hey where did you find the cool doll?

Did you notice that the US didn't invent this thing? Or at least it's not admitting to it.

I think they don't want to be responsible for all the deaths caused by no brakes.
Doll?
I think he means Snow White?
No, I meant the reclining fat doll on some kind of tool. I guess you meant to show us what become of us when we start using hover crafts to move around our tools.

I'd like to give the doll to a few folks I know, That would be a hoot.

Check out the iBot,  which was invented quite a few years ago by the guy who made the Segway.  It was a wheelchair that can: Go up and down stairs,  and also balance on 2 wheels (similar to Segway) to gain additional height for the person to reach higher things, or see people eye to eye.
